Debbie Adamson...new work to see @ AVID!

Two beautiful neckpieces from Debbbie Adamson that explore and embrace new materials. 
They were made during the Handshake project, http://handshakejewellery.com/,
that connected twelve contemporary New Zealand jewellery artists with a mentor of their choice...Debbie's mentor between 2011 and 2013 was the extraordinary, Swedish artist Hanna Hedman. http://www.hannahedman.com/
Definitely worth a look!
